Latinitas is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering Hispanic girls through media, art, culture and technology. Through creative expression workshops, after-school programs and camps, the girls build confidence about themselves and gain a higher self-esteem. Latinitas encourages girls to express themselves through multimedia enrichment lessons on writing, graphic art, desktop publishing, web design, photography, filmmaking and radio production. Positive mentors encourage them to build their self-esteem, confidence, cultural pride, efficacy and resiliency to at-risk behavior. Latinitas youth members also produce LatinitasMagazine.org, a digital empowerment magazine by and for Latina youth.
The Butterfly Effect mother-daughter fundraiser hopes to help Latinitas spread its wings of positive influence to reach more of the region’s girls by emphasizing the importance of creative expression and confidence during their metamorphosis into strong women. The event’s name reflects the organizations belief that together, big changes are possible.
